My Bachelor’s Degree Journey

When I first left high school, I joined the Navy and fulfilled my lifelong dream of joining the military. My Dad was Navy and my sister and myself always vowed to do the same. From the time we were seven, we just knew it was what we wanted to do. While most head off to…

Entyvio Infusion #2

I don’t really know what has come over me.  More and more time passes and I forget to update you on my blog.  But, hopefully, that will change soon and I can get back into a habit of posting consistently. In just 3 days, I will complete the last of my classes at the University…

Entyvio Infusion #1

Since last my last post, ‘Busy, Busy‘, another two weeks have come and gone. Another two weeks and I am that much closer to graduation. I have 2 weeks after Monday and I cannot begin to tell you how ready I am to be done with homework. 16 days to go. And in those two…

Busy, Busy

9 days have gone by, with life being as hectic as ever. I’ve done a handful of new photoshoots and I’ve seen my newest favorite band a few times. I’ve recently become obsessed with Sundy Best, a local Kentucky band, and if you haven’t seen my live videos on Facebook, then you can see some…

Painsomniac

Oh, my.  I am the worst at consistency with posting. I think it is safe to say I’ll post when I can. This post comes with multiple days and many levels of exhaustion. I hope it all makes sense. Well, it is 4:34 a.m. on Tuesday morning. I have a photo shoot today and I…

Vampire

Should I begin by welcoming myself back? Holy Shit! It has been 20 days since my last post.  Pretty certain I have been MIA since May began.  And to be honest, I probably shouldn’t have left you all in suspense with such a morbid and saddening piece like Secret Thoughts & Feelings. I had to…

Secret Thoughts & Feelings

⚠ Trigger Warning: this post discusses depression, anxiety, and suicide. ⚠ This past March I tried to kill myself and only four people truly knew about it. Philip. My sister. Her husband. And the police officer who visited the house -after my sister called them that night. That’s it. It wasn’t glamorous, it was ugly….

10 Days Later

My last blog post was around 10 days ago. What a slacker I feel like lately. To be fair, I have been busier than usual and my body is still adjusting to running around all the time. I have been pushing myself nonstop it seems.  I do too much and I inevitably regret it for…

Two-Step TB Test – WK 2

Since last blog post, this week has been hectic, so again, I have to apologize for the delay. I can’t seem to stay on schedule here as of late, but hopefully, I can get back on track. School has been kicking my ass lately, so I never look forward to Mondays. Less than three classes…

Two-Step TB Test – WK 1

As well as another late blog post week, this week is a short week. If you notice, last week’s blog, Better Late Than Never, was posted on Tuesday rather than last Sunday. Wednesday began this short week filled with doctors appointments, thrift stores, family, and of course, writing and coffee. Wednesday and Friday I’ll call…

Better Late Than Never

I know. I am the absolute worst. I am now 2 days late posting, having missed my Sunday blog post day, and I hate doing that.  I like to keep a schedule but I have to just post when I can, I suppose, but I still aim for Sunday blog days. I’m sorry. After last…

Green With Envy

Well, where should I start for this busy week? I suppose I should apologize for another late post. Like last week, Saturday blogs then into Sundays posting, and my schedule all out of sorts. Now that my IBD News Today column posts on Fridays, I’m struggling to pick my personal column day. I wanted to…
